"I actually think the Dead turned in a pretty honest effort"

I think so too!! that is one of the reasons that on some levels, this pairing works for me. I think the Dead's playing (at least for the 7/10 show) is pretty strong.
Bob's singing aside, I like hearing the boys playing Dylan songs that weren't otherwise part of the usual 5 or 6 that they would normally do... (i.e. Gotta Serve Somebody, Joey, I'll be Your Baby, etc.) We've all heard Watchtower, Baby Blue, and Desolation Row etc. plenty of times. It's nice to hear their interpretations of the other songs. Without this tour, we would have never gotten to.
